Album Review

Before beginning their recording career, the Beatles recorded a few tracks in Hamburg in 1961 as the backing group for British singer Tony Sheridan. Reissued in countless different packages around the globe after the Beatles became famous, this should in no way be considered their first album; not only were their skills rudimentary, but Sheridan takes all but one of the lead vocals on this set of fairly tame covers of popular and early rock standards. Several tracks are of interest: "Ain't She Sweet," with a lead vocal by John Lennon, was a small American hit single in 1964; the driving instrumental "Cry for a Shadow" was written by Lennon and George Harrison; and "My Bonnie," with Paul McCartney's shouts clearly audible in the background, was responsible for bringing the group to the attention of Brian Epstein.

Don't Expect Much

Please stop rating this as a 1-star album on the basis that you are angry over the fact that there are no other Beatles albums on iTunes. This album is a solid foundation for the rest of the Beatles music, but is marred a bit by Tony Sheridan's appearence. iTunes will probably never get any Beatles albums, because of Apple Music coorporation's lawsuits against Apple Computer's name. If you notice, this album is NOT on the Apple Record label, whereas all the Beatles other albums are. Complaining about iTunes's lack of the "Real Beatles" will not do anything -- take it up with Apple Records, which will most likely never sell the rights to iTunes.

Just accept this for what it is and "let it be". as for the beatles on I-tunes it's the same reason you can't by the sheet music for Layla in the USA other people own it.

So much has been said and written about the Beatles — and their story is so mythic in its sweep — that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that...
